Hitomi Hosono is a ceramic artist working in London,
merging European and Japanese traditions with her own contemporary approach. Her current work uses the natural beauty of plants to create porcelain objects that combine dramatic form and movement with sensitively refined details. She studies botanical forms in English city and country garden’s, recollecting memories of nature from her childhood in Japan. She is keen to find the essence of what makes leaves and flowers beautiful, transferring the plant forms’ infinite and complex beauty into her ceramic work.
“The subjects of my current porcelain work are shapes inspired by leaves and flowers. I study botanical forms in the garden. I find myself drawn to the intricacy of plants, examining the veins of a leaf, how its edges are shaped, the layering of a flower’s petals. I look, I touch, I draw”.
